From Feb. 21:
The key is early intervention, before symptoms are evident and brain damage is too extensive. "That's how you stop the disease," says Rudy Tanzi, director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. "You don't wait."

Traditionally, drug companies have tested their therapies on patients who already have memory loss, trouble thinking and other signs of dementia.
